Falls Happen Fast.
Protect them when they fall!
Playground Mats and Safety
Each year over 200,000 children are injured in American playgrounds.
70% of the children injured, received their injuries from falls to the surface below the play equipment.
Playground safety begins with the proper playground mats to protect your children or students from falls from equipment or tripping.
Having the proper rubber playground tiling is critical to ensuring that a simple fall from a slide or swing will not turn into a trip to the emergency room.
Our rubber tiles and playground mats are certified to meet critical fall heights that are set forth by the IPEMA and are designed to create a smooth, colorful, visually pleasing and safe surface that will keep your little ones playing safe and happily for years to come.

How are they made?
Our rubber playground tiles and mats are manufactured in the U.S.A. from the highest quality, recycled SBR tire rubber mixed with colorful – UV resistant EPDM granules which are also made right here in the U.S.A.
The result is a rubber that is uniform in quality and density that is ideal for playground as well as rooftop and deck applications. It provides a clean and safe alternative to wood or rubber mulch.
How do they compare to wood or rubber mulch?
Our recycled rubber playground tiles provide a more stable and uniform surface than wood or rubber chips. Chips and mulch require a high level of maintenance to maintain the mandated safety levels and can end up with low spots, or blind spots which will not provide enough protection to prevent injuries from falls.
Rubber playground tiles provide a stable, uniform and nearly maintenance free surface to protect those precious ones from injury. With our tiles, you will not have to be constantly sweeping and raking the surrounding areas to clean up after stray chips. Just a simple sweeping or hosing and our rubber tiles will look great for many years.
What thickness do the rubber playground tiles come in?
Our rubber playground surfacing tiles come in a variety of sizes depending on the height of your equipment. From 1” thick all the way up to 4 1/4” thick, we have the right tile to meet your needs. Click here to determine which tile is right for you.
